North Scottsdale real estate covers a large area, so we will refer to North Scottsdale area 1 as the area south of Cave Creek Rd, east of The Boulders, and north of Whisper Rock Golf Club. Temperatures are generally cooler in this part of town because elevation is approximately 3,000 feet above sea level. Real estate tends to be low density, with plenty of open space and panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. There are a variety of housing options, as well as a large range in housing costs.
North Scottsdale has many communities to pick from, offering golf, mountain, desert and city view options.
Legend Trail golf community consists of eight distinctive communities with 824 homesites. Housing options include inexpensive luxury condominiums to custom lots, from 1,300 to 6,000 square feet. There are gated and non-gated neighborhoods available. The Legend Trail Golf Course offers an 18-hole course and a 10,000 square feet recreation facility with fitness center, tennis court and two swimming pools. Trailheads to the McDowell Sonoran Preserve are available within the community.
Mirabel Village, a 700-acre golf community with approximately 315 custom home sites, is a guard gated community with semi-custom and custom homes. Many of the home sites range in size from two-thirds of an acre to over two acres. The private golf course was designed by Tom Fazio and the 38,000 square feet clubhouse offers a spa, a health center, clay tennis courts, a swimming pool and fine dining.
Treviso, a Toll Brothers community of 97 homes, consists of homes that were primarily built from 2005 to 2008. Housing options include apartments and condominiums, but majority are single-family homes. Most of the homes are single-story but two-story options are available.
